LESSON NOTES
I divide the broad skillset a leader needs into six categories:
1: Setting the Culture
2: Getting Things Done
3: Building Capacity and Capability
4: Inspiring their Teams
5: Communication
6: Personal Leadership

RECOMMENDED READING
There are a vast number of Leadership books – perhaps more than on any other management-related topic. And there is also a huge range represented in different lists of the best. This no-doubt reflects the different contexts for leadership.

So, any recommended reading list of leadership books must be particularly subjective. I have chosen those that made me think, and which are of particular value to managerial leaders: not sportspeople, military leaders, or CEOs. In no particular order:

πŸ“– Leaders Eat Last
https://geni.us/ZIawP8Y
πŸ“– Start with Why
https://geni.us/D8ZSs
πŸ“– Humble Leadership
https://geni.us/KMuCl
πŸ“– The Leadership Challenge

πŸ“– The New Leaders
https://geni.us/5ziIw
πŸ“– Shackleton’s Way

πŸ“– Why should Anyone be Led by You
